Institute for Cooperation in Space General Counsel and Co-Director Daniel Sheehan, JD, is a graduate of Harvard Law School, a former Director of the Christic Institute, and is a Professor of World Politics at the University of California. Mr. Sheehan has a long and distinguished history as public interest counsel, and was legal counsel in the Pentagon Papers case, the Iran-Contra, Three Mile Island, and Karen Silkwood cases, as well as many other high profile cases. “During my thirty years in the field of public interest law and public policy, I have supervised professional investigations into the illegal smuggling of weapons-grade plutonium, the illegal supply of arms to terrorist organizations by covert operations and government agents, and into ultra-“black” weapons programs unknown even to the most trusted congressional officials. I have come to believe that keeping weapons out of interplanetary space is the most important contribution we can make to the future of this planet. The time to begin this task is now.
Daniel Sheehan is a social activist who has spent virtually his entire life working on progressive social programs and initiatives. As the Legal Counsel on such nationally-recognized investigative cases involving government covert operations as The Karen Silkwood Case, The Iran/Contra Case, The Pentagon Papers Case, The Watergate Burglary Case, and The American Sanctuary Movement Case, Dan brings to the issue of Extraterrestrial Intelligence and the UFO Phenomenon a unique background in investigating and exposing the world of American governmental covert operations, “black budget” operations, mind control programs, government disinformation projects, covert warfare and clandestine operations. He established the Christic Institute in Washington, DC, which for nearly two decades was the country’s preeminent public-interest law firm.
In 1994 Dan defended Dr. John Mack before his inquisition by an Investigatory panel of the Harvard Medical School after Dr. Mack’s courageous publication of “Abduction: Human Encounters With Aliens.” This was not his first, nor his last, encounter with the important issue of Alien Intelligence and American Law. In 1977, while General Counsel to the United States Jesuit Office of Social Ministry in Washington, DC., he served as a Special Consultant to the United States Library of Congress Congressional Research Office Project on Extraterrestrial Intelligence ordered by President Jimmy Carter. In this capacity, Dan was given access not only to the classified portions of the United States Air Force’s infamous “Project Blue Book” files but to the confidential report prepared for the Science & Technology Committee of the United States Congress by the Library of Congress Congressional Research Office pursuant to this Presidential assignment.
Today, Dan is director of The Strategic Initiative To Identify The New Paradigm which was one of the six Strategic Initiatives of the State of The world Forum of President Gorbachev. In this organization, Dan shares the responsibility for formulation of a new world view integrating into all of the classical fields of human knowledge (Cosmology, Theology, Philosophy, Physical Science, Psychology, Ethics, Ontology, Epistemology, Human Teleology) the now virtually universally accepted FACT of the existence of extraterrestrial Intelligence in our Universe and the growingly-accepted fact that representatives of one or more of these extraterrestrial civilizations are presently visiting our planet and interacting with members of our species.
Paul Davids is from Bethesda, Maryland, the son of a famous Georgetown University professor of American History, Dr. Jules Davids, who worked extensively with John F. Kennedy on the writing of PROFILES IN COURAGE (for which his father is credited in the Preface) and who was a professor to Jacqueline Kennedy and later to Georgetown undergraduate Bill Clinton. Paul Davids is a graduate of Princeton University, where he majored in psychology and won numerous awards in writing. He then attended the American Film Institute Center for Advanced Film Studies in Beverly Hills. He is married to Hollace Davids, who is Senior Vice-President of Special Projects for Universal Pictures and who has produced several of his films.
After a few years working as a script analyst for Hollywood agent Paul Kohner (where he read all the submissions for Charles Bronson, John Huston and even William Wyler), his career in film and television took off when he got his “first break” as production coordinator (and a writer) of the original “TRANSFORMERS” TV show for Marvel Productions. He co-wrote (with Hollace Davids) THE FIRES OF PELE: MARK TWAIN’S LEGENDARY LOST JOURNAL and the husband and wife team co-wrote six STAR WARS sequel novels for Lucasfilm and Bantam books, including the award-winning MISSION FROM MOUNT YODA plus THE GLOVE OF DARTH VADER, THE LOST CITY OF THE JEDI, ZORBA THE HUTT’S REVENGE, QUEEN OF THE EMPIRE and PROPHETS OF THE DARK SIDE. The books sold millions of copies and were published in many languages.

Nancy Talbott is the Field Research Coordinator and press contact for the BLT Research Team (John Burke, William C. Levengood and Nancy Talbott), which has been examining plants and soils in crop formations in several countries. They have also studied the electromagnetic environments, unusual animal deaths in the U.S. and Canada, and UFO trace-cases since 1989.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Ms. Talbott worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Maryland and at Harvard University. She then became an independent producer of Appalachian music festivals in the northeast. Since 1992 she has devoted 100% of her time to the development of a cohesive, well-trained field sampling and reporting network in several countries. This network has supplied the thousands of samples examined in-depth by Levengood, biophysicist, and others over the last nine years.
Ms. Talbott lectures to groups internationally which are interested in learning about the physical abnormalities in the plants and soils associated with these phenomena and the hypotheses developed so far to help organize the laboratory data within a scientific context.
BLT Research is a hard-working group of thoroughly interested, capable individuals serious about applying scientific methodology and solid professional expertise to these perplexing mysteries which have been ignored by the scientific establishment for far to long.
An engaging speaker able to present hard scientific data to the lay person in a compelling, easy-to-understand presentation, Nancy mixes facts and visual images and her years of experience to skillfully show the high-strange, scientific reality behind mysterious phenomenal events.
